HUM-MOLGEN DIAGnostics/Clinical Research


CMV strains

We are interested in receiving DNA from individuals with hyperekplexia and other startle syndromes for mutation analysis of GLRA1. Sporadic as well as familial cases are of interest since we have found reccessive as well as dominant cases due to mutations in GLRA1.
